It’s party time in Atlanta. The confetti is flying and residents are smiling.
The Atlanta Braves have reached the mountaintop, capturing the 2021 World Series today. They defeated the Cleveland Indians 7-6 at Truist Park to officially wrap up the series 4-3.
Asked how it feels to be champion, left fielder Marcell Ozuna was to the point.
“It feels great, like a million bucks. I’m so happy right now, not just for me but for all the guys,” he said. “We put a lot of work into this and deserve to be champions.”
The team is planning a victory parade and fan appreciation day later in the week. Atlanta finished the regular season 99-63 and claimed second place in the National League East Division.
